    • Thank you, I have been researching for about 20 years, and I have a lot of Wills to publish, many needing transcribing too. Others have been previously published in books dating back to the 1800’s. I’m slowly working through them and indexing these records. It’s going to be a very long job.

      • Sometimes getting your findings in circulation will connect you with other researchers who have data to swap. It’s been one of the joys of my Orphan George Chronicles blog.

      • That’s one of the things I enjoy most about genealogy, researching with other genealogists. It makes a very solitary hobby into a team effort. Lol.
